If you want to get started scanning the heavens at night the first thing you are going to need is a good quality telescope that can make it easy for you to see the stars clearly. A Celestron telescope is considered to be one of the better telescopes on the market. In fact the quality of these telescopes is so good that they are chosen by many professional astronomers.

If you are looking for an entry level Celestron telescope you will find that at Telescopes.net we have several different refractor models in the $200 range. If you are a professional astronomer we also carry the Celestron CGE Pro 1400 HD telescope for under $10,000. As you can tell there is a huge difference in prices, but despite this difference, the one thing that is always a constant with Celestron is that the quality is the same no matter how much you spend.
